          This is a really nice quality medicine cabinet. I can't believe how much storage you get from it. The doors are soft close and it is very sturdy. The only complaint I have is I would of liked a little more flexibility in the shelf locations.
          The second picture shows how it looks when I turn on the Armacost RGB LED lighting. Love that lighting!
          Pros: Looks Great, Durable, Good Size & Weight, Good Use of Space, Great Value, High Quality

I have purchased three different vanities from homedepot.com and this was the worst. The other two, were great. From my experience, I would never buy this again no would I recommend it to anyone.
          In my picture, you can see the center support that we had to put in because the two doors wouldn't close properly because it was sagging. And I don't have a lot of stuff in the center of the cabinet! Read Less

          I completely agree with the other 1 star reviews, these hoses are only good for one season - at that! I used them last summer in my garden beds, I planted my spring garden and went to install the hoses and out of 10 hoses only 1 does not have major leaks. As for the comment on water pressure damaging the hoses and that you should install splitters and reduce your water pressure...well, this may be the only way to use these soaker hoses. However, before buying these soaker hoses, I used the cheaper ones, under the same conditions, and they last at least 2 years or more. I am beyond frustrated since the manufacturer warranty is one year. Guess when I bought them? You guessed it - 3/17/2014 - I Read More

          Transform your paint sprayer into a rolling system with this Roller Kit. The kit is four times faster than a traditional roller and eliminates the mess and hassle of a roller tray. Simply attach it directly to the spray gun; no tools required. Pressure rolling is ideal when spraying is not possible.

          I hesitated spending $80 on this accessory since I just spent $300 on the Graco X5 sprayer - which I didn't budget for but figured it was cheaper to buy it than rent a sprayer since I had a whole house to do. After spraying the whole interior with primer, I like using the sprayer since it is light and easy to maneuver but I was painting the walls a different color than the ceiling and the thought of trying to protect the ceiling while spraying the walls is what lead me to look into this accessory. I hesitated because of the cost and some bad reviews, but figured it had to be better than spending the time to protect the ceilings from overspray. I am glad I did!

After spraying the whole interior with primer, I like using the sprayer since it is light and easy to maneuver but I was painting the walls a different color than the ceiling and the thought of trying to protect the ceiling while spraying the walls is what lead me to look into this accessory. I hesitated because of the cost and some bad reviews, but figured it had to be better than spending the time to protect the ceilings from overspray. I am glad I did!
          Well yesterday I did two coats on 90% of the interior walls of a 1500 square foot house - by myself! 3 bedrooms, hallway, living room, and family room. I was exhausted after at the end of the day and had my frustrations with the roller, but was still glad that I bought it. As a previous reviewer stated, the roller is heavier than a standard roller. You will have to roll with two hands. One on the gun and the other guiding the bar. Because it is heavy and you are triggering the paint that comes out of the roller, you need to 'guide' the roller up/down the wall so you don't get 'runs' on the sides. The best way to describe this is when you have a roller filled with paint and you roll and lean on one side of the roller - there will be a run of paint on that side. This can occur with the roller if you don't use your hand to guide it - especially in tight corners/areas. It does take a little getting use to since you trigger the gun to get paint to the roller and roll. As some reviewers stated, it took longer to cut the corners than it did to roll the walls. Here is my two cents on the pros and cons.
          Pros -
          Clean - there are no drips from the roller and it is 100% cleaner than the sprayer
          Fast - Energy focused on rolling not stopping and getting more paint on your roller
          Economical - less paint used since you put the sprayer hose into the gallon/5 gallon bucket and not pouring into trays
          Cons -
          Heavy - the roller is heavier than a traditional roller. I recommend getting the cheap gloves that have rubber in the palm and fingers and use them to paint. It helps with the metal gun and the hand that holds the metal bar to the roller
          Size - the roller bar is fixed. If you have a small area, i.e., 3' hallway, it can be difficult to roll
          Fighting the hose - this pairs with the "heaviness' of the roller. At times when rolling the hose would cause frustration.

          I purchased this runner for my stairs because my older doggies were having a tough time with the wood stairs. It arrived very timely and is a lot nicer than I expected. It is really thick and plush. Because of the quality I am thinking of doing the rest of my stairs. I would also not hesitate to use it just as a hallway runner.

          How random is the pattern of the boards? I installed Traffic Master Lakeshore Pecan (looks great) but they only had about eight different patterns so you had to make sure to open all the boxes and sort by pattern before you could lay out your floor otherwise you might have the same pattern next to each other.
